Synopsis

The Big Book of Nonsense Poems to Make You Laugh Out Loud by Colin West

The closest relative of man They say, is the orang-utan; And when I look at Grandpapa, I realize how right they are! Jam-packed with the very best nonsense rhymes and tricky tongue-twisters, this wonderfully exuberant collection contains quirky, colour illustrations from Colin West and lashings of his wildly wacky verse! Divided into sections to satisfy nonsense-lovers everywhere, this brilliant bumper book will keep children in fits for hours and may inspire them to become rollicking rhyme-makers themselves! Chapters include: Curious Creatures, Tricky Tongue-twisters, Funny Folk, Moments with Monsters, Dotty Ditties, Vicious Verses, Hopeless History, and Stories in Stanzas.

About the Author

Colin published his first collections of nonsense verse in 1975, shortly after graduating from The Royal College of Art, and since then has written over 60 children's books. His talent for off-message, anarchic laughter has brought him many fans, including America's Children's Laureate, Kenn Nesbitt, who calls him a master of the art of humorous poetry for children. Colin lives in Battle, East Sussex. Visit his website at www.colinwest.com
